A worthwhile hike
Jun. 2018 • Couples
We had a lovely hike up to the ruins today. This is a very worthwhile hike. So much atmosphere around the ruins. I really appreciated the plaques telling you what the different spaces were used for. The hike up is absolutely beautiful. We so enjoyed the sound of cowbells on the walk up.

Awesome hidden ancient castle
Oct. 2015 • Couples
By far the most awesome castle we visited in Germany.
(even though Schloss Liechstenstein was the prettiest in my opinion)

There's no word to describe the amazing feeling you have hanging around almost by yourself only in a place full of history as this one.

We originally planned to visit Burgruine Hohenfreyberg instead, but Burgruine Eisenberg was the closest (you have to walk a bit to get to it). We had a long day ahead still (we had to get to Innsbruck from Stuttgart in one day) and we wanted to visit Füssen for obvious reason. I still regret our decision not to visit Burgruine Hohenfreyberg to this day.

We were driving through the area when we saw the ruins on the hilltop and decided to pay them a visit.

it was so worth it, exploring the ruins where quite a change from guided tours around rebuilt fantasy castles. the views also proved to be spectacular too

Fun in exploring the castle ruins!
Jul. 2015 • Family
Our hosts at our Bed and Breakfast had recommended us to visit two abandoned castles. We were looking forward to visit them. Our first castle was the Burgruine Eisenberg. We were astonished that it was quite large and we had fun exploring every nook and cranny. It still had numerous walls standing. There were remnants of a tower still standing up. We were even able to visit the cellars and the fortifications. It must have been quite a formidable castle in its days!

The view over the region was subliminal. A little town nearby as well as mountains made the landscape even more attractive! It's as if we were in Faerie land!

We found out that this castle was build around 1313 by nobles of Hohenegg. They wanted the castle to be impressive. To do so they built the main castle on a high mountain and surrounded it with high walls. For some reason they sold the castle to Austrians in 1382, who decided to strengthen their defenses. However in 1525 peasants damaged the castle. It was rebuild 10 years later by compensation money from the poor peasants.

Then on Sept 15, 1646 the peasants got their way.For some reason the Austrians burned their own castle and left the region. Strange, don't you think?

All in all, this was one of our highlights of the day, visiting an intriguing abandoned castle. One day someone may meet a ghost!
